Okay, so like most of you, Facebook aka Crackbook aka da’ book, has got me in its evil clutches. I can only spend about an hour or so each night hitting da’ book, but I try to make it count. I have a least 3 browser windows open so I can maintain my Mafia Wars game, check my inbox and read my newsfeed. It’s a sickness.
Anyway, I have a friend from high school who I “defriended” last night. She’s one of those folks that updates her status every 3 minutes and says nothing of any interest. I had already hidden her from my news feed, but then she decided to send make contact with me every day – either by a wall to wall message, an inbox message or an instant message the second that I log onto “chat”. Geez! Before da’ book, we hadn’t spoken in about 16 years and now we need to talk every day? NOT! I don’t even talk to my BFF, Diamond Girl, everyday. There’s no need!
So, I mentioned to her how limited my time is, ya know 3+ hours a day commuting, taking care of a 4 month old, etc. She didn’t catch it. I let the nonsense go on until yesterday. She sent me a Mafia Wars request with, “Since you play this, I thought we could play together”. Really? Then, she changed her avatar. Not a big deal, right? Wrong! Shouldn’t matter at all to you TDJ? Wrong. She changed it to a scary, little white kitten. Yick! In case you are a new reader, TDJ truly has ailurophobia (the paralyzing fear of cats). You can read all the gory details about my scary history with cats here.
That was the final nudge that I needed. As of 11:51pm last night, she was defriended. Oh well! It’s my Facebook account and I can do what I want!
